POPULARITY OF PRAYER BOOK GLOSSARY PROMPTS FREE BOOKMARKS

11th October 2018

The popularity of a free double-sided glossary card produced last year by the Prayer Book
Society to assist understanding of obscure words in The Book of Common Prayer has
prompted the production of another give-away – a colourful bookmark designed to be used
for daily prayer, based on extracts from Morning and Evening Prayer from the Prayer Book.


Since the glossary was launched 13 months ago there has been steady demand for it from
schools, theological colleges, churches and worshippers of all ages, reports John Service,
the society’s clergy and churches co-ordinator.


The value attached to the glossary cards was underlined this year at the annual
commemoration of the martyrdom of King Charles I at the Banqueting House in London’s
Whitehall. A copy was placed on each of the 300 chairs and, after the event, only 35
remained.

To obtain up to three free bookmarks and/or glossary cards send your request with a
stamped addressed envelope no smaller than 22 cm x 11 cm (DL size) to the Prayer
Book Society, The Studio, Copyhold Farm, Lady Grove, Goring Heath, Reading RG8
7RT. For bulk orders (for example for use in schools, colleges or churches), please
contact the Society at pbs.admin@pbs.org.uk or on 0118 984 2582.
